Prevent encoder crash caused by row tile dependencies

In multi-thread case, the encoder may crash if using encoder option
tile-rows > 0. To prevent that, force tile-rows=0 in this situation.
This is a workaround for WebM issue 1095:

The further fix can be done by adding synchronizations after a tile
row is encoded. But this will hurt multi-threaded encoder performance.
So, it is recommended to use tile-rows=0 while encoding with threads
> 1.
